Cool! Me, on the other hand, I'm just cherry picking the ones that'll complete and complement my MOTU Classics toyline. So I'm just gonna get me Orko, any vehicle that a Classic can ride with their size, any effect/weapon that'll fit the 7 inch line, and such. Then on to #masterverse---just to fill out the missing 7" figures that my collection needs. 😇

I also collect classics more on the side of the Filmation figures from Super 7 which are fantastic in my opinion. Now moving to Thunder cats since Super 7 is not making anymore MOTU figures...

Yeah, you can easily cancel items from your pre-order.

Im still collecting classics here and there so don't think I'll be getting into origins but it's awesome to see them now easily available for everyone who collects them.

Hey hey! yes! Classics is the best. Though I'm hoping to grab some of those Origins minicomics one of these days. Aren't you even slightly curious about the continuity of the MOTU story? Friendly question, really :)

Here in the US new Masters of the Universe Origins products from Mattel have begun showing up at Target stores including the new Deluxe Battle Armor He-Man and Skeletor figures. The DCPI# for Skeletor is 087-16-5586. These figures are no longer exclusive to Walmart. The images of the Battle armor figures come via plaityme who also put together a quick video showing off the battle armor chest flip motion which appears to work better on Skeletor than He-Man.

In the images he also shows off how you can mix up parts between these new Deluxe Battle Armor He-Man and Skeletor figures with the regular versions including the heads and legs.

Other products I've heard hitting Targets includes the wave of figures with She-Ra, Roboto, Mer-Man And Zodac. I've also seen reports of Battle Cat and the Sky-Sled with Prince Adam now being found at Target stores. Some of the older figures that were originally released at Walmart last year I believe have also been seen at Target's now.

The new Origins Panthor has also been found Target

 

here in the US as well as Walmart stores in Canada. The one I saw found at Target was seen in an Oregon store. The package images of Panthor come via possessedhorde and the out of package shot with Skeletor riding him comes via eternal_eternia.

As of this posting Target has yet to list any of the new Origins product on their website, of course you can pre-order all of these items from places like our sponsor BigBadToyStore.com.

Also don't forget that there will be a Flocked version of Panthor

 

released for $39.99 and Walmart sometime in the near future.

I'll be getting me the smooth Panthor but what's it about flocked Panthors and Battle Cats that some people are raving about? I don't get it? Those things are dust magnets and it's not like one will hug it like a Teddy when they go to bed, just the way I see it. Not hating or anything like that. Peace.

I thought about using Origins Orko with Classics too but it didn't occur to me that maybe classics will be able to fit into Origins vehicles....maybe even possible for Classics to fit in with Origins Castle Grayskull...!

I'll wait for them to be collected lol. I actually have that Dark Horse mini comics collection right next to me and go through it every once in a while.

Another way to go about it. Though those minicomics are kinda cute and thrilling to catch on their own. Hehe... so reminiscent of vintage

I'd suggest to watch the vid reviews first if you'll go this route. BUT if any of the Origins playsets work out for your Classics figures, message me here. :D

Shown below are carded images giving us a look at the basic Masters of the Universe Origins Hordak and Tri-Klops. Also shown are the other two figures in the wave which are Ninjor and Stratos which we had previously seen. We can see this verion of Tri-Klops is based on his regular look and is not the Fan-Poll winner version. Also not there is a Deluxe Hordak figure coming that we have not yet seen images for.

The Hordak wave is available for pre-order from our sponsor BigBadToyStore.com

And the image of Tri-Klops from the poll differs from this design (it had more of the mini-comic look to it).

Unless the design shown was for some kind of variant or exclusive.

I believe that the Tri-Klops in the fan poll is indeed a different version that should fit in nicely with the LoP stuff. Putting that one in the poll was a good choice for Mattel since it'll allow them to reuse a head that is very character specific. I'm sure that the chest covering of the fan poll figure will get repurposed for some other figure down the line. MotU was all about gimmicks to sell the line (beyond the first assortment which was all power-punch) and parts reuse to keep it cheap to manufacture. Seems like this line is staying true to the gimmicks at least somewhat (glad to see that battle armor figures retain the gimmick) and are embracing the parts reuse (they'd be fools not to). I expect to see more of the LoP / Mini-Comics inspired figures since they are a great way to offer new figures without too much development cost.

I am all for reusing anything to create new offerings. I don't recall this particular version of Tri-Klops ever being created before (in the Classics line or after Super7 took over). I have the mini-comics versions of Trap Jaw and Beast Man from the Classics line though. So it'll be nice to have a mini-comics version of Tri-Klops available.

I just found it funny that they could confirm him so quickly after the poll finished. They were definitely going to produce him either way.

Being honest under other circumstances this would have caused me a lot of joy, but all I have is a mixture of feelings.

Can't say I disagree with you there... especially regarding distribution. Locally we went from totally empty pegs (collector's gobbling them up before they could even get put out) to them falling off the pegs. Would have helped to smooth the curve with more initially and less later on.

This has got to be a variant. Can't see it in any other way.

I feel like there was a bit of a missed opportunity in MOTU not naming a character "Mightknight."

Ha! I can think of so many names that could have been good MOTU characters/gimmicks.

But I like that one... Might Knight.

I don’t suppose you’d let me steal it to possibly name a figure down the road? 😆  I’m working on a novel/action figure line (very MOTU inspired) and that would probably make for a cool character.

I mean, technically Jay wrote it (minus the K), but I'm sure that was a typo.

Ahhh. Gotcha. Some of the original names for MOTU figures that ended up changed prior to production were interesting too. Like "Hose Nose". LOL

And believe me, even though the exclusivity period with Walmart has ended and other retailers can sell them, that is not going to change things much, the distribution will still leave a lot to be desired, the best option will still be to get them online and well it is now when we will see the test of fire of the franchise, if this time around it can be kept afloat at the retail.

Keeping my fingers crossed. :) It seems the reception is good so far. Hope this is a good sign we'll really  have the #masterverse
